Commercial plumbing installation has evolved beyond simply hooking up pipes to fixtures and making sure water flows and toilets flush. Today, plumbing is part of a holistic approach to construction that is integrated with the entire community, including designers, operators, users, and the public.

In Europe, long before indoor plumbing, cities installed open drains for waste disposal. People employed chamber pots for their personal needs, and when the pots were full, they were dumped into these convenient but smelly drains.

Solar water heating systems can now tap into residual heat generated by other sources within a building. Heat can be recovered from the wastewater discharge of laundry systems, food service dishwashers, and A/C condensers to help raise incoming water temps and reduce energy consumption.

There are several reasons why regular preventative maintenance and regular inspections are recommended for plumbing systems in commercial buildings.

Why would a pipeline in your home develop a crack over time? One possibility is subsidence. For example, in coastal areas in the U.S. it is not uncommon for the ground to contain a large percentage of soil, which compacts over time, leading to subsidence that can cause drainage and sewer pipes to crack or break.

Running water waiting for the tap to heat up can lead to some pretty big energy bills. In fact, the amount of water wasted annually just waiting for hot water is more than 9,000 gallons. Unless you’re ok with throwing money down the drain, make sure your water heater is in good working condition.

04/21/2020

If water efficiency and usage is a concern, consider having waterless urinals installed in your building. When combined with low flush-rate toilets, they reduce both the amount of water entering the structure and the volume discharged.

In addition to being quick to install and easy to connect, PEX pipe is quiet. Copper pipes may clang or chatter under pressure or temperature changes. PEX pipe is flexible and resilient with a smooth inner surface, so it delivers water without the sound effects.

It’s important to remember that not all plumbing fixtures are interchangeable, especially when dealing with sinks. Remember, each sink has a set number of holes pre-drilled for the fixture stems. Be sure you know which type you need before you start shopping.

It may sound a little excessive, but to properly unclog a kitchen sink, you need more than one plunger. While you will be working the plunger over the sink that is clogged, you’ll also need to cover any other sinks with a plunger to create a vacuum seal.

03/17/2020

Traditional pipe systems must be dry-fitted before connections are cemented, but PEX pipe is different. Connections are made by expanding the pipe and inserting a fitting. When the expander is removed, the pipe shrinks to size and tightly grips the fitting.

If LEED certification is one of the goals of your building project, bring us in on the project as early as possible. Waiting and trying to meet requirements late in the design and/or construction process can increase costs and delay the project.

PEX pipe is replacing copper and CPVC in many new commercial buildings. The cross-linked molecular structure makes it durable and flexible, and because it’s available in 1,000-foot lengths, it requires fewer connections so installation faster and more efficient.

In a typical home, more than 9,000 gallons of water are wasted while running the faucet waiting for hot water. As much as 15% of your annual water heating costs can be wasted heating this extra 9,000 gallons.

02/20/2020

Copper pipes are described as “biostatic.” What does that mean? Contaminants can’t penetrate the pipe walls, because the metal is impermeable, and scientific tests indicate it has natural anti-bacterial properties that inhibit the growth of bacteria.

You would be surprised what finds its way into sewer lines and clogs them. From tennis balls to diapers, the list is almost endless. However, the most common clog is a plug of built up grease – which is easily prevented.

We had them out to do work on a gas fireplace and the two guys they sent out could not resolve the problem so they told me to purchase additional materials and call them back and they would bring the supervisor back to finish the job. Ha Ha - three phone calls, and no response whatsoever! So we fixed ourselves. I guess they sent dumb and dumber out but since my daughter has an undergrad degree in engineering she fixed it!!
I requested an estimate for my employer and met with the HVAC supervisor (Rueben) on 04/12 we are now 2 weeks later and I have received nothing. This was for 4 new coolers single inlet to be moved/installed and all necessary work/changes. I would appreciate a response in a timely manner...I will give you 48hours to respond since you have already have 2 weeks at this point I consider your customer service extremely poor!
HSC always provides prompt and professional service! Thank you for always being there!
